graham saying "we have nobody to blame but ourselves when it comes to losing hispanics. i intend to tear this wall down and pass an immigration reform bill that's a solution to an american problem." softening towards immigration reform is even happening among some fox news channel personalities. of course, not on fox news channel, but on the radio shows. but still, it's happening. so immigration reform may be more within the realm of possibility in the near term than it has been for a long time. last week on thursday, two days after the election, mark kelly, the husband of gabrielle giffords made a statement at the sentencing hearing of the man who shot her and 18 other people outside a tucson supermarket. it included a poignant call for a restoration to sanity on gun policy in this country for at least a return to what used to be the gun laws in america "we have a political class afraid to do something as simple as having meaningful debate about gun laws and how they are being enforced. we have passed up the opportunity to address this issue. after columbine, virginia tech, aurora, we h
government. >>> listen to this, democratic senator chuck schumer says he and republican lindsey graham will restart immigration reform talks that crumbled two years ago, and schumer believes they could get a deal done, and soon. >> graham and i are talking to our colleagues about this right now and i think we have a darn good chance using this blueprint to get something done this year. the republican party has learned that being anti-illegal -- anti-immigrant doesn't work for them politically and they know it. >> key provisions of the plan include a path to citizenship for those already in the u.s., and stronger border security. did you catch this video? some payback on the track led to an all-out drawl during sunday's nascar race in phoenix. jeff gordon he's number 24, he intentionally took out number 15, clint bowyer, in response to an earlier bumping incident. or so that's what they call it. when gordon got back to the garage area, bowyer's crew went back. bowyer then tried to confront gordon later. but crew members managed to keep the two drivers apart. that helped a little later o
the investigation into the attack on our consulate in benghazi. >> as of now sen dorr lindsay graham who is leading the charges to find answers says it is essential for him to still testify. >> one thing that has to happen in my view we have to get to the bottom of benghazi. i hate what happened to general petraeus but we have twour dead americans in benghazi. i don't see how in the world you could find out what happened in benghazi before, during and after the attack if general petraeus doesn't testify. it is essential he gives testimony before the congress so we can figure out benghazi. you have got the department that needs to explain themselves intelligence committee. god knows the state department needs to answer for their behavior regarding benghazi. i would suggest we have the house and senate members we do this together not have three different committees going off in three different directions so we can get to the bottom of it like we did in watergate and iraq contra. that would be smart for the congress to combine resources. >> it will take place thursday. the state department says she wi
. senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham both said today they want to have watergate style hearings on the attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi and said that if you nominate susan rice to be secretary of state they will do everything in their power to block her nomination as the sender granted, he simply doesn't trust ambassador rice at what she said about benghazi. i would like your reaction to that. and with those threats deter you from making a nomination like that? >> for salon not going to comment at this point on various nominations that i will put forward to fill up my cabinet for the second term but those are things that are still being discussed. but let me say specifically about susan rice. she has done exemplary work. she has represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with scale and professionalism and toughness and grace. -- with scale. as i said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to for. if senator mccain and senator graham and
that kind of softness. who really in this country is pushing for extending it? lindsey graham, john mccain and the departing joe lieberman. i don't know of any other voices in the national political scene who are saying we can't leave. we have to do as long as it takes and stay there forever. there's no public support for it. >> because of this scandal, i just -- i mean, one of the things that you hear from veterans groups, that people outside the military i don't think seem all that comfortable talking about is the personal toll of these long deployments over multiple years on people's personal lives. young veterans bemoan the rate of divorce among veterans. how difficult it is to sustain a family and relationships. i don't know why we think it's easier for top commanders than your average infantry man trying to hold his family together. is this potentially -- we tend to defer to the military's own judgment on these things. we ask the commanders on the ground for their own opinion, but is this not another occasion for civilians to say, this is done in our name. the military isn't figh
section. >> two plus two equals seven. everybody knows that. >> stephanie: okay. >> i'm sure tim graham will enjoy that at myth busters. >> stephanie: love you tim. kids we keep this ramshackle operation running by going to pc dot? for many of us our jobs are demanding. most of my day consists of cocktail hours so i need to package my work into a neat little bow. that's why i rely on my pc. it's the powerfully simple tool that keeps you connected to your business wherever you are. it turns any pc, tablet or smart phone into your office computer. you remember save, edit and send files? the olden days, may friend. now your work computer will be everywhere you are whether you're working from home, traveling, you will never have to carry a flash drive again. >> do you remember when i left all of the audio files at home and i had to race home and get them. >> stephanie: i remember that. >> that was before go it my pc. i didn't like that. >> stephanie: do you remember when i had to go back home to get my show prep, and then the arm came down on my car and i yelled the f-word right on the air.
objection. briefly, then i'll -- mr. graham: very briefly. here's the request of the body. benghazi needs to be investigated. we need to find out what happened so it never happens again. you have four americans killed, the first ambassador killed in the line of duty in 33 years. that's worthy of our time. dianne feinstein is doing a very good job with saxby chambliss on the intel side. general petraeus must testify. i think secretary clinton must testify. here's the problem that i have with the approach we're taking. armed services needs to ask d.o.d. how could you not come to the aid of the consolate for almost eight hours on september september, of a days? the state department needs to be asked, why did you deny additional security requests that had been made for months? and could you not see this coming? and the c.i.a. needs to be asked a lot o questions also. a select committee, where you have members of intel, foreign relations and armed services, listening to all three agencies explain themselves i think is essential to get to the truth. i will not know what general petraeus says in
controls the primary process. >> senator lindsey graham said sunday he plans to revisit comprehensive immigration reform that was shelved two years ago. >> it's one thing to shoot yourself in the foot. just don't reload the gun. so i intend not to reload this gun when it comes to hispanic. i intend to tear this wall down and pass an immigration reform bill that's an american solution to an american problem but we have nobody to blame but ourselves when it comes to losing hispanics. >> republican pollster tells "the new york times" it is obvious until republicans do do better among nonwhite voters they will cease to become a viable national party. we're going to have to address the fact younger people tend to be less conservative on a number of hot button social issues. a former bush adviser put it more bluntly. we have become what the left was in the '70s. former bush, if another republican man says anything about rape other than it was a horrific, violent crime, i want to personally cut out his tongue. the only woman in the house gop leadership said republicans have a communication n
graham from south carolina has been talking a lot about the shape of the republican party going forward. particularly after this election. i'll just throw up some numbers here while i'm on this subject. among latino voters, president obama won 71% of the latino vote. mitt romney, just 27%. with african-americans, it was more of a blowout, 93% for the president, 6% for mitt romney. last night with anderson, lindsey graham, the senator from north carolina, was sort of talking about this situation pp. let's listen. >> i think most hispanic voters, they didn't have a real fondness for president obama. i think they saw him a lesser of two evils between obama and us, because he didn't really lift a finger to do comprehensive immigration reform, like he promised. so we'll be back in the game. immigration is a national issue, it's just not an hispanic issue, it's an american issue, and there's a solution to be found out there if people want to find it. >> is it as simple as he says, lenny? will you get back in the game that easily? >> i think when it comes to our principles, when it comes to th
. arguing there is no political mandate. is that true? joining me now, michael graham, a radio host and a columnist with "the boston herald", and julie roginsky, former political adviser to frank lautenberg and a fox news contributor. so the washington times comes out with an editorial that says he has no mandate. they say that he is, pointed out that he's the first president since george washington to be reelected with fewer popular votes than he was in the first term and say he's got no mandate. michael, true? >> uh, it's hard to see the mandate of a campaign that seemed to be focused almost entirely on whether or not the republicans were going to break into your home and steal your feminine hygiene products. so i can't really say he ran on this plan to do x, he's going to get it. but i don't think that means he's a lame duck. he has the power of the presidency, it's a very powerful tool. he's got the media, obviously, very cooperative. so let's just say he's a limping duck might be a better answer. megyn: is -- julie, your thoughts. because the point of the editorial is they say

graham talked about it last night when he was chatting with anderson cooper. here is what he said. >> i just think the honest truth is that we have a demographic problem. had we gotten 40% of the hispanic vote, mitt romney would be president. mccain got 39%, bush 41 got 41%. we're going in the wrong direction. >> the mayor of san antonio texas, julio castro, thank you for joining us. i was speaking with kay bailey hutchison. she believes ideologic aally that latinos may be sort of linked to republicans than democrats, that maybe some of these issues around immigration is what's keeping latinos from becoming republicans. do you think that's true? >> well, i think that latinos are like every other community in the united states. they have the same concerns. and those concerns are several. and i know that senator hutchison, of course, is very familiar with the latino community, representing texas. i would say, though, that it's the tone on issues like immigration but also the substance, the policies that republicans have embrace d on health care, on education, on the economy. on health car
taken by executive fiat, which is even more anathema to senators mccain, graham, and others. that is a sideshow, a three-ring circus, and have a couple of side rings, that remained in the bombings as well. one thing i would say about the fiscal cliff, at one level you could say there's no great sense of urgency. as many people have said, it is more a fiscal slump than clef. it is not like we're going to plunge into the horrible up this immediately. there are many things that an administration can do to ameliorate the impact of many of the tax cuts and of the budget cuts. there are some significant amounts of discussion about how you deal with budgets. you can move accounts aren't among the things related to public safety. it is not quite the same as it was when we had the shutdown of the government in 1995, but there is a lot of discretion there, and among other things, you can have an administration that the sides -- that decides to not to effectively change withholding rates to keep the immediate impact of the tax cuts from taking hold. you can do that for only certain tim

to national security, like senator john mccain and senator lindsey graham. however, will not necessarily heard about point the president say -- no way is this going to happen. was for indication that it is one area where, although there's a lot of gridlock here, both parties to agree on this one point, that this should not happen. host: next caller, bob on our line for republicans, new jersey. caller: i have two comments. one is, in this a good idea to go over the fiscal cliff. and i am wondering if the tax cuts expire, does that mean that the 47% better not paying taxes will start paying taxes? if that is the case, let us go for it. it is time people get into the game, even if it is $5 a year. something. i will take your comments off air. host: my question was going to become a what does it mean for him? that goes to the question of how much could this mean not just for everyone, but how much it means on a personal level. we will ask other callers there. what to do think about his proposal that we drive off the cliff? caller: i think for a while it seems like that now have been more of a poss
anathema to senators mccain, graham, and others. that is a sideshow, a three- ring circus, and have a couple of side rings that remain as well. one thing i would say about the fiscal cliff, at one level you could say there's no great sense of urgency. as many people have said, it is more a fiscal slump than cliff. it is not like we're going to plunge into the hole if we don't fix this immediately. there are many things that an administration can do to ameliorate the impact of many of the tax cuts and of the budget cuts. there are some significant amounts of discussion about how you deal with budgets. you can move accounts that aren't among the things related to public safety. it is not quite the same as it was when we had the shutdown of the government in 1995, but there is a lot of discretion there, and among other things, you can have an administration that decides to not to effectively change withholding rates to keep the immediate impact of the tax cuts from taking hold. you can do that for only certain time. that is true. on the other hand, things like the doc fix, also as they
best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. and i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received and besmirch her reputation is outrageous. host: president obama at a press conference. yesterday the ambassador he was talking about is susan rice, ambassador to the u.n. here's an image of her in the "washington times." and a quote from her. the best information and best assessment we have today is that in fact this was not a preplanned, premeditated attack. those are words she said just after the attack in benghazi. our question for you this morning is about the white house national security team. here's what steve tweets in. i am more confident of this national security team than the one that told me there were w.m.d. in iraq. morris in san diego, california, joins us now. republican caller. hi. caller: good mor
that senator graham and i laid out and brought structure -- >> 2007. >> yeah. last time and what happened was obviously the other side of the aisle said we're not doing immigration reform. i think they're going to want to do it now. that's at the top of the list. because the nation demands it, needs it and, again, i think in the exit polls, 2/3 of americans basically agreed with the concept of real immigration reform. along those lines. you know, wasn't in any detail in an exit poll, but the basic thrust of the question would lead you to believe they would agree with that proposal. second thing we have to do, both candidates, president obama, governor romney talked about making us more energy independent. there are a lot of things we can do that might lead to compromise. first, two things have been done by the administration that people forget about. the cafe standards when fully implemented will reduce the need of importing oil for gasoline. isn't that incredible? and the greenhouse gas standards have really changed the way power plants have to function. that plus the free market force o
. there is another factor for 2014. among those up in 2014, mitch mcconnell, lindsey graham, saxby chambliss -- if you are mitch mcconnell four years ago, but would have had unanimity that theh waas king of republican party in kentucky. there was not a contest for the leader. then 2010, he put every resources could, every attempt to keep randpaul from winning the republican nomination and failed miserably. if you are looking at this from mitch mcconnell's perspective, knowing that several other republicans who ran for senate this time would not promise going in that they would support mitch mcconnell. and you have the potential for a primary challenge in a party you no longer control. your willingness to compromise on some of these critical issues may be itself compromise. if you're john cornyn, you would have stayed out of the race for the republican nominations for the senate this time around but you sat back and watched as the very conservative and powerful lieutenant governor was beaten from one end of the state to the other in the primary by ted cruz because it was a moderate. and you h
in the proposal that senator graham and i laid out in broad structure -- >> 2007 bill. >> yeah. last time. and what happened was, obviously, the other side of the aisle said we're not doing immigration reform. i think they're going to want to do it now. but that's at the top of the list, because the nation demands it, needs it and, again, i think in the exit polls two-thirds of americans basically agreed with the concept of real immigration reform along those lines, you know, wasn't in any detail in an exit poll, but the basic thrust of the question would lead you to belief that they would agree with -- believe that they would owe with that proposal. second thing we have to do both candidates, president obama, governor romney, talked about making us more energy independent. there are a lot of things we can do that might lead to compromise. first, two things have been done by the administration that people forget about, the cafe standards when fully implemented will reduce the need of importing oil for gasoline. isn't that incredible? and the greenhouse gas standards have really changed th
